This is the old everything-successful path through the code:

platform_device_alloc()
platform_device_add_data()
platform_device_add()
evm_led_dev is set to the device

This is the new everything-successful path through the code:

platform_device_alloc()
platform_device_add_data()
platform_device_add()
platform_device_put()
evm_led_dev = NULL

And, specifically, the code sequence (I quote from your patch):

if (status)
goto err;
err:

is very stupid; it might as well not exist at all.

Since other code references evm_led_dev, one can assume that we do
not want it to be NULL for the success path. So, taking all this
together, your patch is very very wrong, and I also find it very
worrying too.
